Thanks for the super thorough write up. That will definitely help. I've ridden passenger on the track, bit never ran it, so I've seen it in person. And I've run at Willow Springs a number of times, so I'm at least familiar with the high speed stuff.

But now I'm super nervous about the oil pan. I didn't realize it was quite that dire of an issue. I'm not going to have time to get it done before next weekend... Here's hoping I don't scatter the motor. :/
